Commenting on the death of former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath, U.K. Independence Party leader Roger Knapman MEP said that he had ‘served his country well until 1945, and then drawn the wrong conclusions from his experiences’.
Mr Knapman continued, “Sir Edward was well liked and well respected both as a Prime Minister and as a person. It is unfortunate that the conclusions he drew from his experiences up until 1945 have proved to be wrong. His lasting legacy has been the continual erosion of the sovereignty of our nation, as he himself admitted in his final speech to the House of Commons.”
